Gros Oiseau Corrida, a vase produced by Pablo Picasso, is expected to sell for £60,000-80,000 ($100,926-134,568) at a sale of the artist's ceramics at Sotheby's London.

The vase is numbered seven of an edition of 25

The hand-painted piece dates to 1953 and is numbered seven of an edition of 25. In June 2013, another example from the series sold for £79,875 ($125,164) at Christie's London.

Last year, a series of pieces the artist produced at the Madoura studio sold well.

Picasso's pottery is popular among budget-minded collectors as it offers the chance to purchase a piece of work from one of the greatest artists of the 20th century for a fraction of the cost of one of his paintings.

Some of the lots carry estimates as low as £500 ($841).

We have this superb signed postcard from Picasso.
